Just getting ready to catch the 10.30 train to Cardiff. The only damper 😂 is the Irish management making us keep the roof open. What a fvcking joke, but rules are rules

Such a shame this, and the other match threads couldn't have utilised this thread for reference in years to come. It's not like it used to be on here.

Under 6 Nations rules, both sides must agree to close the roof. This can be overruled by stadium management if it becomes a health hazard to the spectators and fans, ie heavy snow etc ...

But not for the torrential rain and gale force winds expected today

Going to be a close one. If we can keep Earls from scoring we will do it methinks, and if Hendy boy Josh Adams has a good game then the Irish will be weeping into their stouts tonight!

Agreed (even though I started a couple for previous games🙄). Genuinely didn’t see it or forgot about it.

Threads like yours should be stickies. Maybe mods could do something next year or sooner for the WC possibly?

Bloody marvelous.

I knew we could do it but not as good as that. Well done Wales. Here's looking forward to the World Cup.

Off into Cardiff now.

Schmidts decision to keep the roof open has bitten him on the arse.

Imo if the roof had been closed the irish would have won, it was easier for us to defend with the ball being a tad slippy, we could move up a bit quicker and put pressure on their runners.

But our defence was awesome, navidi was like a rash he was everywhere, made loads of big tackles all game

The mood Wales were in today, they could have played in the Sahara or the Arctic and they’d have won. They made their intentions very clear from the kick off.

Opinions are what its all about

Would have been interesting if it was dry the irish would have had more continuity with the ball and thrown it about more often

But i agree our defence probably would have kept them at bay and ateotd have won us another grand slam

My point being schmidt will rue the decision to keep the roof open

For ireland to stand any chance to win the championship they needed to win with a 4 try bonus point.

By having the roof open on a, wet day they removed any chance they had of doing that.

Muddled thinking before the game translated into muddled thinking during the game.

Both Farrell and Sexton couldn't cope with the pressure this campaign.

Absolute dominant performance by Wales, it says,something that i was disappointed we didn't nil them.

I don't know how many people noticed Alun Wynn Jones today when the anthems were being sang? ...

He took his jacket off and wrapped it around the shivering little mascot standing in front of him.

A giant of a man, with a massive heart!!

Another amazing piece of kidology by Gatland. He was vocal all week about “not spoiling the occasion for the spectators “ and Ireland fell for it hook line and sinker. Brilliant!

After forty minutes in Paris
They said that Wales were shite
That the only team to win the Slam
Would be a team in white
Inverdale was chuckling
At the thought that Wales could win
But what he's got to say right now
The despicable vile goblin
Never write a Welsh team off
We don't know when we're beat
And as I'm writing this right now
There's Welshies dancing in the street
Some will say that we're just lucky
That we punch above our weight
And that's why we're so happy
Because being Welsh is simply great
The Italians never threatened
The English never came
The Scots they tried their hardest
But it all came down to one last game
The Irish would be too good for us
It was still England who would win
But Slams are not decided
Before the games begin
The Irish took our roof off
They wanted to fight us in the mud
A challenge that was thrown down
And stirred the dragons blood
The stadium was bursting
The anthem brought a tear
And seventy seconds later
We heard that famous cheer
The pressure was relentless
And the Irish lost their way
Hymns and arias rang out
As the stands began to sway
The stadium is part of legend
The cauldron where druids boil
A mix of raw emotion
With an extra pinch of hwyl
But it's right that we should remember
As the glasses fill with beer
Not everyone is happy
Or filled with joy and cheer
Somewhere sat in England
There is a grin turned upside down
I'd pay to see the face right now
Of that tosser called Mike Brown.
